Deleting a media only deletes the file, not the associated folder on S3 #1543

According to the docs, it says:

When a Media-object gets deleted the package will delete its entire associated directory. To avoid tears or worse, make sure that every media gets stored its own unique directory.

I tried it (my filesystems is S3) and what happens is only the file get deleted. the associated id folder doesn't get deleted. It becomes an empty folder instead (i.e. folder 123 for media id 123 still exist but empty)

What did I do wrong?

Thank you.

I think this is a bug, i'd accept a PR that fixes this.

The same issue is on Azure - I beliefe that this is related to the blob-storage and that they don't know directories but Filesystem::getMediaDirectory() creates the directory - in blob storages this will result in a normal blob.

The error is here that it only excludes the driver name if it's s3. So it doesn't exclude by the driver or does it exclude other blob storages.

if (! in_array($media->getDiskDriverName(), ['s3'], true)) {
